Waterman 52 1/2V Red Ripple (Near Mint) – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterma 52 1/2V Red Ripple – Super Flex   (On Ebay)

This is a gorgeous Waterman 52 1/2V in woodgrain or red mottled hard rubber (not red ripple as the photo states, oops). This pen is in near mint, collector’s quality condition. There is virtually no fading of the hard rubber. The gold-filled trim still looks lovely, and the imprints have no apparent wear on them.  The only blemish are some light impressions on the barrel from where the cap threads, but they are very light. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a very smooth writing F with plenty of tipping left. Honestly, I don’t think this pen was hardly ever used. It also has some good flex that goes up to BB (1.6mm) with ease. Responsiveness is pretty good and the flow keeps up well. A stunning pen in top notch condition.
